Baptiste, Ben and Megan secure Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award

Three Rydal Penrhos pupils have been rewarded for their exceptional commitment to an ongoing outdoor education initiative.

Baptiste Mazars, Ben Davies and Megan Gibson, Year 10 pupils at the school, are now the proud owners of the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award after successfully coming through their respective assessments.

The trio all worked incredibly hard under the guidance and support of programme co-ordinator Dr Jim Lewis, which saw them take part in community volunteering and a series of expeditions in order to secure the accolade.

They will now begin working towards their Silver Award in the coming months as each pupil aims to add to Rydal Penrhos’ incredible history of success from the initiative.

Head Boy Nick Fiorita became the latest to secure a Gold Award during his time at the school, and he will attend a special ceremony at St James’ Palace later this year as a result of his efforts.

Dr Lewis, said: “None of this would be possible without the dedicated support of the staff involved, particularly Miss Margerison, Miss Jones and Mr Sanders, who are all thanked for sharing their expertise and endless enthusiasm.

“We are thrilled with the progress made by Baptiste, Ben and Megan, who have demonstrated the sort of enthusiasm and drive that has become the trademark of the exceptional pupils we are lucky to work with here at Rydal Penrhos.”
